On the Hill: Hike the Rubicon Trail

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different Lake Tahoe adventure every day.

Today's activity: Hike the Rubicon Trail.

Conditions: Today Michelle takes us on a fairly beginner hike along the Rubicon Trail from DL Bliss State Park to Emerald Bay. The trail runs along the lake so the views are of course awesome, and it's about 6.5 miles one way so it's a great day hike.

Today's weather: Late August at Lake Tahoe means get out early before the heat and likely thunderstorms hit, and today is no different. Just a 30 percent chance of those storms we've seen all week, but the winds will still be around, up to 20 mph, which will keep the smoke at bay but will also play havoc with your hair. Again, hit the trail in the morning for the best conditions.— National Weather Service
